    I don't own an Artifact, but how about my HK Jockey Club card? :) The pry bar is made of 304 stainless and measures 13.5 cm (5.3"). It's pretty darn solid. I'd let 'em go for $20 shipped. They were advertised as kubotans in China, and IMO they'd be pretty good as kubotans too.

    I did carry one, but after a couple of months I realized I hadn't used it once, so I went back to using knife blades and screwdrivers to pry things as necessary. Not sure I've used any of them for that, either.

    I finally got a chance to use my Pico widgy bar outside of the house. It was actually the first day I decided to EDC it. I was at the local subway station, and I found out it was "tokens only", and all I had was change. Turns out, the token machine was jammed :brickwall:

    It wasn't until then I remembered I had my pry bar on me. I put it to work, and it fit perfectly into the coin slot. So not only did it save me from having to walk through the mall to the other side of the station, but I also got to ride for free :D

    In addition to the Stanley Fubar in the bag and Boker cop tool on the belt, I just recently received my EOD breacher bar.

    At the moment I'd use one of those credit-card sized metal cutout tools to pry stuff with, but am thinking of picking up a couple of Gerber Shards if/when they're released.

    If you don't mind not having a dedicated bottlecap-opener, the Micro prybar from County Comm is a good one. Priced right too.

    Had a look when I first found the forum, but CC seem to be US only. Reckon I can probably find somewhere that'll do Shards to the UK should they come out. Thanks for the thought though.

    edit: Found the EndTimes site that ships internationally, but I think I'll hold out for the Gerber one.
